I just renewed hosting with Go Daddy. Besides insulting me with references to my obsolete and unsupported software, I got the distinct impression that the not only don't they need me, they don't want me, and prove it by how much they are charging! I won't mention it and I don't want any help but it's serious money, at my bracket.
I have wondered why some message boards have folded the tent and although I can't put my finger on it, I'm pretty sure the genre is headed the way of the Dodo Bird. Must be that socialist and commie stuff where they censor everything and everybody, FaceBook and Twitter, Instagram, etc.
All these hi tech entrepreneurs have been firmly indoctrinated in Liberalism, and that's opposed to freedom of expression, among other things progressive.
So, here it is folks. Take advantage of it, no censorship and you can say anything you want. It may be one of the last public forums. Look at the other topic concerning those enlightened assholes in Kommieformya. Elect some dipshit governor and zip, no death penalty. Zip, illegal wetbacks can vote! Zip, can't sell raw fur.
What I'm saying is; you gentlemen underuse the resource. Take advantage of the opportunity while my generosity continues. I have a huge problem with SPAM membership that I haven't solved and is the reason I haven't opened the new member queue. I think, if I recall, there hasn't been more than 3 or 4 new members in at least 6 months. But, I am working on that, too.
This is a thankless job, I enjoy doing it and treat it as almost an obligation. We don't talk enough about coyote hunting, that's for sure.
So, make a little effort. Do something to stimulate activity. We can't be depending on ko ko for conversation, brilliant as he is. Just contribute now and then, and keep it going, or it can die.

Oregon is just as commy as calif is. They also are burning off that area of OR just as bad as the forest service is with the forest lands.
Sorry I've been doing to much puttering outside and enjoying it.
I go back to work the 22 and won't have much internet usage while down in the valley.
Thank you LB for you keeping this place up and going. If you end it I'll probably do away with the computer
WoW! It's actually putting down big rain drop and raining other than the usual Challis mist.

I like the Burns area, true though western Oregon politics are getting as bad as Kalifornia.
Rural Oregon folks despise the liberal west side.

It's really the same in The People's Republik. Inland is a hell of a lot more conservative than along the coast. However, when you elect enough Democrats, they see an opportunity to GERRYMANDER as much of the state as possible. The purpose is to stamp out any conservative or Republican so they can do things their way without any interference. That's how it is here, they don't need to consider any point of view besides Liberal. So much easier when they can totally silence all opposing points of view.
As I have said for quite a while, this Kalifornia attitude is creeping your way. The whole west coast, top to bottom is liberal. Nevada used to be pretty solid Republican and so was Arizona. Don't count on it. Put your finger to the wind.
This little bitch AOC is the tail wagging the whole Democrat dog. Every Democrat running for president is in favor of reparations for blacks and native Americans. And that's one of their most conservative positions.
Why do I sound so negative? Cheer me up, tell me it's going to be ok.

its going to be OK for 6 more years LB, after that is anybody's guess.
BUT I say we all need to live it up like there's no tomorrow, today. I think I have enough in savings to make it 12 more years without work, and AOC says we only got 12 more years before the whole earth goes up in flames. SO, let's all retire now and enjoy the final chapter of da earth as we know it.

In response to the comment about 6 more years. I agree with that, but afterwards, are the Democrats going to elect some idiot socialist? It sure looks that way.
Here's the main thing we need. REFORM OF THE MEDIA.
They have become as much the opposition as the Democrats. Yes, thank God for FOX News, but it's ridiculous how slanted is both the print and electronic Media. Somebody somewhere somehow has to get in there and monitor the Media so that we don't have a slanted article. The whole purpose of CNN is as the opposition party. THIS IS NOT RIGHT!
We need something like the website I think it's called News Busters. Or the one called Media something? But it's not enough because they only affect those who will listen. They lack enforcement. These liberal outfits can say anything they want, who's going to call them on it? NOBODY!
These places like MSNBC and CNN are actually criminally liable for what they put out. It's not their job to oppose the Administration every step of the way. They should report the news not jump on the bandwagon, and talk impeach 24/7 and "collusion, collusion, collusion" all day long. We know they are Liberal and Liberalism is a mental illness but they have a legitimate function in this society and they aren't doing it.
How can we correct this situation? I don't know but it's not getting any better. There has to be a solution or we are up shit creek without a paddle!

As hard as it is to admit this, on Saturday's I listen to NPR on the radio because they have some good humor stuff. Anyway, this morning they were talking about how tech has affected the way we read. Turns out that the part of our brain that reads on a digital device like a computer, phone or tablet, is completely different than the part that we use to read printed media like books.
The media portion is more adept at reading quickly. Scanning and flying through the material, but not able to actually comprehend and absorb the information as well as when we are reading it off paper in print. This is actually true when testing individuals given the same text and info just by different means.
Why does this matter? Technology has adversely impacted how we digest information provided to us. Speaking for myself, I would much rather sit with a Zane Grey novel - I have an entire 20 volume set from the 1940's - and all but immerse myself in that story line to the point that I don't even really notice what's going on around me, than read the same book off my phone or kindle. I've been doing a lot of research on my laptop recently on a couple projects and just prefer to print off the sources I have online so I can read them off paper. It hit me today that my comprehension and retention is better off paper rather than from digital. This is likely why.
Very few people read off paper anymore. We get inundated with digital data and that part of our brain, when drawn upon, automatically shifts into high gear and scans and surfs over the text not really absorbing anything except that which the media wants us to see. The part of our brains that absorbs and retains, and makes us good critical thinkers is growing soft and hard to draw upon when we need it. Technology and digital data have dumbed us all down so far that we don't even see what the elites are doing under our very noses.
I know that when I first came here, it was a go-to destination at least once a day. At the same time, I called people less often, or met with them face to face, and quickly became reliant upon the convenience of email. When tweeting and texting came along, email became a cumbersome dinosaur, so we all started texting one another. I check my email maybe once a day, at best, unless I'm expecting something. I used to check it every 30 minutes, if not more often.
I guess the point of this is that we are all falling victim to technology as it makes our lives faster and more convenient, but in doing so, pulls us further and further from one another. This ol' school board is like a party line anymore. Not many of the internet experts could dream of holding their own in this venue where you have to be prepared to defend every syllable of every word. Your points will be challenged and your words will be parsed and how long you survive is determined only by your willingness to stay in the fight.
I was looking through old photo support last night and found a half-dozen pics that Ronnie Robison sent me for the "Booger Red" story. Been gone almost six years now. Got me to thinking how long I've "known" some of you bastards.
This place has a lot of history, and for that, LB, we owe you a debt of gratitude. Pretty much like the checker players at the VFW. Them young punks ain't got nothin' on this group. There was a time...

That's very interesting Lance My wife has her mug in a kindle all morning then when she exits the bed for breakfast it's off to her sewing room . With the weather we have had this winter we have to spend a lot of time cabin bound. I cant read like I used to as my eyes suck I have never been a TV guy but have become one of sorts I will not watch CNN or MSNBC it makes me angry I don't even like Fox news any more bunch a cunts. Most media makes me think about building bombs LOL just kidding ! I cant handle the media anymore I'm sure they will come up with a disease for my condition soon . When I do watch TV I like programs like THE FIRST 48 where detective's keep rooting through the bullshit and find the bad guy .Oh and old westerns ! It is a shame to watch the greatest nation ever crumble before our eyes Muslims in the senate who da thunk !

Who the hell is that NAZI that's always threatening to lock threads? Did somebody from PMS sneak in here? They've been quiet lately, (PMS) I shouldn't poke them, but they so richly deserve it!
I don't believe it for a minute but somebody sent me a warning about ko ko. Said he was a plant: CIA. As if I didn't know? I just played along, said I would keep an eye on him. What else could I do anyway? I found out he reports directly to John Brennen! Yikes! And, the worst part, he watches CNN! Hard to believe, ain't it?

Pretty sure KoKo has a double O status one of the few assassins that kills with a traditional bow only.
Posted by Leonard (Member # 2) on April 08, 2019, 06:39 AM:
I didn't know that.
edit: I guess that explains why he doesn't seem to know shit about guns?
(just kidding, just kidding!)
But, anybody that can kill a coyote with a friggin' bow deserves some respect. I don't know what it proves but you don't do it just by getting lucky.
Anyway, I will take that info under consideration. No wonder he wins the prizes at that tournament.

Back from a road trip and learn all kinds of things I didn't know about my own humble self.
If I'm a plant, it would be a tumbleweed. Prickley, annoying and tend to wander around.
I wonder if the gentleman providing that information is the same one who once referred to us as 'pampas know-it-alls' ?????
Posted by Leonard (Member # 2) on April 09, 2019, 09:17 AM:
Yup, same guy. So, of course, due to an abundance of caution, you will be on probation....at least 'til hell freezes over. One false move and you lose your premium access status. Why risk that?

Posted by Kokopelli (Member # 633) on April 09, 2019, 02:37 PM:
Yes, I understand probation and the terrible consequence of losing one's vowels.
I might as well come clean; I was placed here under deep cover 14 years ago by the KGB to obtain enough photos of El Bee holding / aiming / drooling over, an A.R. to put together a calendar. So far I have three. This might take a while. Actually, Kelly has them. He's my Handler & I only take orders from him or the leader of our cell, Aunt Jemima. Once we have the goods we'll sell the calendars to 'that other board' and use the profits to finance a coup.

I always thought there was something going on here. Just couldn't put my finger on it. Maybe a seperate council investigation is due. And I want the full report with no redactions. The "People" need to know.
Posted by Leonard (Member # 2) on April 10, 2019, 05:09 AM:
I don't threat losing vowels, Amigo. Ask around....
Walt, you've been here long enough to earn premium access. It's all there. Enjoy.

For what it's worth, Huntmasters "migration" is complete without incident. I guess that's a good thing because it could have resulted in an interruption of service. Unable to post "important" messages and pithy responses. So we dodged the bullet. Whew!
Huntmasters joins the big leagues now, Baby! I don't pretend to understand all of it, but this makes it easier to administer the site. We will see? I never pretended to be a computer geek, I just stepped up and filled in when it was about to fold, and look at us now! Pretty awesome, eh?

Posted by Leonard (Member # 2) on April 12, 2019, 06:24 AM:
I know you've been worried about that issue for a long time and I want to assure you that we have done everything possible. But, it's not foolproof. There's a word we throw around in situations like this: "Hopefully" no more PMS harassment. Rest easy, big guy!
